The Crystal Scholarship
The journey of a breast cancer patient is difficult. It not only affects the individual, but every member of the family as well. In honor of those families being affected by breast cancer, Murfreesboro Medical Clinic has established the Crystal Scholarship to assist the children of MMC breast cancer patients in continuing their education beyond high school.
“As a new mom myself, I know that the one person I would worry about most, should I ever develop a life threatening condition, is my daughter,” said Dr. Lisa White, a provider at MMC’s Comprehensive Breast Center. “This new scholarship is our way of showing our patients that we care about not only them, but those people who are dearest to them.”
The scholarship is named after Crystal Brown, an MMC Comprehensive Breast Center patient. Her son, Michael, became a recipient of the inaugural Crystal Scholarship in 2019.
The diagnosis of breast cancer is scary, but we are committed to taking care of you and those who are closest to you. At Murfreesboro Medical Clinic, you are family.
